Currently running a special, salad bar, choice of three entrees and choice of three desserts, all for $12.99. A lot of food and very tasty too, highly recommend it. I do have an issue with service at Ruby Tuesday though, we... More

Bring the crab cakes back !! Service was more than slow think they are either short staffed or poorly guided. The only reason I go to ruby Tuesday is for the crab cakes.

I stayed at a nearby hotel and this was the best choice for dinning. The service at the bar was obnoxious, talked and talked. My food was excellent. Bathroom wasn't very clean.

Good food; great place for lunch and conversation. Great salad bar. Service could use a little attention and focus.

Three of us had dinner that included chicken parmesan and ribeye. The food was excellent and I especially enjoy the signature salad bar. The server, however, seemed to have more important things to do than pay attention to our table.

Thank drdon100
